Subject(s): New Mexico; Yucca Plants

June in New Mexico, -- a desert land,
Basking beneath a torrid, cloudless sky;
Seas of dun-colored, torpid, desert sand,
Reaching horizons cupped in purple dye.
The gray-green mounds, -- waves in arrested motion,
Innumerable appear, as fallen on sleep;
A soundless, motionless and molten ocean,
Where, in the silence, deep calls unto deep.

Upon the dormant waves, with sails outspread,
Are argosies of ivory-winged feluccas,
Burdened with Beauty, on the earth to shed
The cream-white glory of Regina Yuccas.
Ethereal visitants to earth they seem, --
The living splendor of a Poet's dream.
